Plant Construction Series


Commissioning, Designing & Building a Plant

When a manufacturer decides to build a new plant, or to expand in a new one, the manufacturer will either employ an engineering company to undertake design and construction, or, if the companyown engineering department is large enough, they will do the design work, manage the project, and employ one or more contractors to do the construction work.

In either procedure, the manufacturer supplies information concerning the purpose of building processes, production rates, design criteria for specific requirements, details of existing plant, and site surveys, if any.

The designing and building of an industrial plant is a complex undertaking. Except for the larger industrial concerns, who may maintain their own design staff, the design and construction of plants and related facilitiesis usually undertaken by specialist companies.

I am just describing you the organization and responsibilities of design engineering, with special references to the duties of individuals engaged in the development of piping design for plants. Each company design their own design criterias.
